Dear Carmel Creek Parents and Guardians,
The students are very excited to share their work tomorrow evening at our Open House. Open House is a special opportunity for your child to showcase their work and share their school day experiences and learning spaces with you.
After you visit your child’s classroom, please stop by the STREAM Studio for a few special parent-student activities:
- Your child will have an opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge of programming a Carvey. The Carvey will be running to model 3D thinking and visualization with robotics.
- Students will also have the option to program probots to make a constellation picture.
- A third activity your child may choose to participate in will be a low tech, high fun design challenge.
- Please note the second-grade radishes are growing rapidly. Admire the vegetable growth, but please do not touch. Our second graders are in a competition at the San Diego County Fair.
These are just a few of the many enriching STREAM Lab experiences supported by the Solana Beach Schools Foundation with instruction led by our STREAM TOSA, Ms. Farnsworth. Ms. Farnsworth and our classroom teachers work closely to successfully implement a connected and integrative instructional model to guide our students toward master of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
At 6:05 to 6:30 Mrs. Walker’s third grade class will be exhibiting a “living museum”. The living museum is a first effort for us and will be held in the stage area. The students are excited to share their biography research work. Kindergarten, first and second grade students may enjoy listening to the third-grade students share information about icons such as John Muir, Frida Kahlo, Julia Child and George Lucas. Students will be in character bringing history to life. This is a casual and interactive experience. Please stop by the stage area after visiting your child’s classroom and the STREAM Lab. I know our students will appreciate the encouragement.
Feel free to visit the classroom of your child’s past teacher or take a walk-through grade level rooms that your child may be moving to in the fall. Hope to see you at our Open House.
Lisa Ryder, Principal
